Warm up tips and ideas for before training?

can u suggest warm ups before training and how long between drills thanx

set cones out 2 sets in mirror image at 10 mtre spaces i,e go ahaed 10 mtres then go right 10 mts go left 10 mts go straight ahead 10 mts then lefft etc etc  etc etc 

have the lads jog, then high knees then side step etc and have them jog back down centre to repeat

Progress to 20 second excellerated dribbling/change of direction-20 second recovery. Repeat it 4 times. In the same area go through the full range of dynamic stretches.
